Which lines from the play reference the Elizabethan idea that the moon was transient and fickle and could cause that type of behavior in people?


“Now the hungry lion roars, / And the wolf behowls the moon;”


“The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve: / Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.”


“To live a barren sister all your life: / Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.”


“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, / Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend / More than cool reason ever comprehends. /The lunatic, the lover and the poet / Are of imagination all compact:.. / Or in the night, imagining some fear, / How easy is a bush supposed a bear!”


“How chance Moonshine is gone before / Thisbe comes back and finds her lover?”
